    Hey guys, So over the past few years I've fixed a few broken maps ba_jail_blackout_csgo_fix1 → jb_blackout_sg_v1-0 (v1-1 coming soon™) jb_tower_b7 → jb_tower_b8 jb_minecraft_beta_v4-2b → jb_minecraft_beta_v4-2c (v4-2d coming soon™) jb_clouds_beta02 → jb_clouds_sg_v6 (v6-1 coming soon™) ba_fail_jail_go_b4 → jb_fail_jail_b5 (coming soon) But now I want your guys opinions on somethings. First off I have planned to fix either texture_jail or some other map that needs fixing. Next I wanted to overhaul a map that badly needs it (which there are a lot of). The main difference between an overhaul and fixing is how much I change in the map. In a fix I try to keep the map exactly the way it was and to only fix things that were broken or never worked the way the mapper intended. In a overhaul I will change textures, games, layout, etc.. but I will try to keep the spirit of the map going forward. Think of ba_jail_shel_sgfix_csgo_v2 vs jb_ivanns_is_a_faggot_csgo_v2 where ivanns is a complete overhaul of the shel map and shel is just a port/fix. SPAWN PRIORITY: I also wanted to take this post to point out something subtle I've been doing in these maps that you may or may not have noticed. Its called spawn priority and I have it planned or in all the maps above. Basically I can decided which spawns will always have players spawn there and others that only get players there if there are a certain amount of players on the server. The way this works is that spawns have a priority setting from a scale of 0 being the lowest and 999 being the "highest". The player will always spawn at lower numbered priority first before moving onto higher numbers. So if I have 8 T spawns, 4 of which have priority 0 and 4 with priority of 1 and I have 6 Ts on the server then the 4 priority 0 spots will always have a player spawn in them while the spawns with 1 might get a player there (random every round which spot gets filled). MY SPAWN PRIORITY PHILOSOPHY: I want low pop rounds to have less rebelling because its just pointless (it's like a 1 sided warday). But I believe that T's should have better chance of getting vent cells and rounds should be more consistent. So with my balancing I get rid of double spawns and make it 100% chance of ANY TERRORIST getting vent cell during rounds with 16+ T's. This gives players that want to rebel a better chance of doing so and also lowers the chance of getting multiple terrorist getting the same vent cell unless there are 24+ T's. This also ties into my opinion that CT's should have helmet+armor because I'd like to raise the chance of ant T getting vent cell. Removes CT's Lucky "No Terrorist got vent cell" rounds By ensuring any T will get vent cell with more than 8 or 16 terrorist Lowers individual chance of getting vent cell By removing chance of having 2 T's spawn in vent cell Spreads out Terrorist evenly between all cells Makes spawns more consistent for CT's to better predict round outcomes Buff gun cell pistols to Fivesevens with 15→30 rounds or Deagles with 7 rounds Rebel cell order 0→4 T's = No rebel cell 4→8 T's = gun cell 8→16 T's = gun + vent cell 16+ T's = gun + multiple vent cells SPAWN PRIORITY MAP NOTES: BLACKOUT (feature not used yet)- This map has 4 cells (top row) that have a chance to get a glock in it, and 1 bottom right cell that has 1 spawn that teleports you to armory. My change would allow you not to have to fight for the gun in the cell it spawns in, and also makes it easier to do gun checks since you will have less Terrorist stacking by default (1 T per cell most of the time). TOWER- This was the first map I used this feature on. There is only 1 vent cell technically (top left) but the all the corner cells have easy access to rebel by running behind cells. These charts don't show it but I also limited the number of T's spawning on these corner cells and spread out the spawning so that once again there is less T stacking. MINECRAFT (feature not used yet)- This map ONLY HAS 8 CELLS, 2 of which are vent cells. This would by far be the hardest to use this feature on given the limited number of cells to work with. I have what I think would be best, but even that I do not like. IMO this is probably one of the only maps that is best left untouched. Fail_Jail This would really be the 2nd map that I plan on using this feature on. There are 3 rebel cells (2 vent 1 gun) with 2 spawns each (NOTE: I didn't count the vent that leads behind cells). Once again the spawn priority are spread out so that there is less T stacking. There will always be a Terrorist next to the bottom vent cell with the smoke so they can still easily rebel. Terrorist tend to spawn on the lower cells first before the top row of cells. CHANCE CHART NOTES: On the "Any T's" chance chart 100% indicates that 1 T will get a rebel cell while 200% chance indicates that 2 T's will get a rebel cell (this also applies for higher percentages). I have 8, 16, and 24 highlighted because those are around the numbers I was trying to optimize for. Relevant ppl: @Nau @Beerman

    Hi all, It's been sometime since ZE has seen some love so I apologize for the wait. Tonight I will be adding the reconstructed Zombie Escape Server I have made these past couple days and continue optimizing the server based on how the next couple days go. Many issues in the past that some dealt with such as air knockback has been fixed and you might find many other things as well. I also wanted to mention that the server WILL be different. I made this server to be different than the standard ZE server settings. There are MANY different ZE servers out there period. We are going to compete not by being the same as them but different. I hope some of you understand my mindset on this change. That being said feel free to post what you feel needs to be added or removed whatever, from this point forward ZE will be receiving updates more constantly. I will be adding more details tonight. your favorite idiot, fps_trucka

    My time is now.

    This is cringey af blame @Lindsay for telling me to post it. In the most lucrative part of Pizza Town, a castle loomed over the landscape, bearing the blue and gold of the once mighty Syndicate Gamers. However, the palace was a shadow of its former glory, with the appearance of crumbling after a massive assault some time ago. In the center room of the once grand structure sat a simple looking chair atop a risen pedestal, with banners of victory tattered about the room as if torn asunder in anger. However, it was the chair that drew the eyes, as it exuded an aura of greatness and untouchability. Sat upon it was a hooded figure, shrouded in the darkness of the room and enveloped by an aura of terrifying power. In front of this otherworld being knelt eleven figures, trembling as if bowing before an angry god. ”You have failed. This does not come without consequences.” The hooded figure spoke without moving in his chair. A cold chill ran over the room, shaking all before him to their very core. ”But my liege, we can rebuild! We can bring back Mitc…,” one started to say. ”Silence!” The hooded figure did not raise his voice, but his fury could be felt as the room started to heat with his words. ”You interrupt me, he who failed the most? You dare mention that buffoon in my presence? He could not even make it to the promised land, even accompanied by the Usurper.” The being let out a heavy exhale so to retain composure. “You, Jeff, are banished from this place, never to return. I care not where you go, get out of my sight.” The disgraced advisor turned and ran from the palace so not to incur any greater wrath. He had heard tales of Piplup, and did not want to meet the same fate. The hooded figure remained motionless, but the room returned to the previous chill. ”Pike. Fugner. ATTG. Sean. Remove yourselves from this place. Only return if summoned, otherwise do not enter this domain again.” Four figures rose and solemnly walked out. They were merely thankful that the monarch had treated them with indifference rather than contempt. Pike fell on the stairs walking out before composing himself to leave. The hooded figure turned to look at one of the remaining subjects. ”Cows. You served me to the best of your ability, however it is not enough. Rather than exile, you shall be given to the Legends as a gift. Do not waste this mercy I have granted you.” The figure stood. “Thank you my lord.” He bowed and then left, knowing his chance of greatness had passed him by. ”Rise, Eddy.” The once proud warrior stood, unable to look into the eyes of a being he had failed. ”Once, you served me well. No longer. However your talents have not completely dwindled, and you once were akin to a brother. I send you to the land of raids, so to rest in return for your years of service.” He raised a finger, and Eddy was suddenly transported to the land of WoW. ”Your kindness is unparalleled.” He pointed his fingers as a pistol out the door, toward the sea and the bounties of the land called the retirement region. He put down his thumb, becoming a bullet that shot across the horizon. Only five figures remained. Three knelt to the side, huddled as a unit. Two, obviously younger, knelt before the deity. ”Avenger. Lindsay. Once you were akin to flesh and blood. Now you must go, to fight our enemies and defend our home. Safe travels, my friends.” One of the kneeling figures melted away into a shower of golden liquid as if teleporting, while the other turned into a small bird, looking once at the god before flying away, a robin in the wind. ”As for the rest of you. These walls must be bolstered. Where are the new blood?” He looked to the door. As he did so, in walked several beings. One bore the horns of a devil, another blinding white garb. One smelled of chicken and walked with a twitch, as if he was unhinged. The hooded being merely looked at the medley, ”These will do for now, but they are not enough. Did any great warriors answer my call?” ”Yes, I did.” In the doorway stood a man bearing a katana, with a chicken tender adorned banner to his back. ”Nau. You enter my domain?” The hooded figure was still unmoved by the entrance. ”I have come to join you. We shall crush all in our path. You shall….” The warrior was interrupted by a blinding light from the entrance accompanied by a gust of wind. All turned to see a radiant and powerful being, levitating in a meditation like pose with many arms of light emerging from behind him. He nearly matched the hooded god’s shadows with his own light. He floated into the room without breaking his pose. ”Destin.” The dark god rose from his chair, casting an immense shadow across the room that brought all but the newcomer to their knees. He levitated and floated over to approach the new entrant, and the room quaked as the two forces of nature approached one another. When they stood a mere meter from each other, the room rumbled as the competing light and darkness fought. The dark god’s hood was blown back, revealing the Demon King himself, Bulletford. The two stared for mere moments, but to all in attendance it seemed like hours. Destin then extended his hand to Bulletford, an offering of alliance. Bullet was slightly taken aback, but extended his own in a handshake that would be felt the world over. The two gods then spoke as one, Now. To take back what is ours. OUR TIME IS NOW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kkjr4qcrkE

    I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest unban appeal in the history of sG. Six months ago, a great autist, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, abused his privileged knowledge as a prior staff member. This momentous action came as a great surprise to another sG staff member who had been seared in the flames of false accusations. It came as a joyous daybreak to end that second staff member's long night of interrogation. But six months later, the autist still is not free. Six months later, the life of the autist is still sadly crippled by the manacles of being kicked from discord and the chains of permabans. Six months later, the autist lives in a lonely private discord in the midst of a vast ocean of discord prosperity. Six months later, the autist is still languishing in the corners of sG society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. In a sense we have come to our community's complaint department to cash a check. When the architects of our community wrote the magnificent words of the sG Global Guidelines, they were signing a promissory note to which every member was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, autistic members as well as normal members, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of discord, the forums, and the pursuit of shitposting. It is obvious today that sG has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her members of the autistic spectrum are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, sG has given the autist people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But we refuse to believe that the bank of the complaint department is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this community. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of unbans and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind sG of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of tyranny. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of #general-chat to the sunlit path of unban justice. Now is the time to lift our community from the quick sands of cynicism to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s autists. It would be fatal for the community to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the autist’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Twenty nineteen is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the autist needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the community returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in sG until the autist is granted his membership rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our community until the bright day of justice emerges. But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the autist community must not lead us to a distrust of all sG members, for many of our members, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot shitpost alone. As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of member rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the autist is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of staff tyranny. We can never be satisfied, as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of shitposting, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the forums and the hotels of discord. We cannot be satisfied as long as the autist’s basic mobility is from a smaller ban to a permaban. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating “For Members Only”. We cannot be satisfied as long as a autist in Florida cannot vote and a autist in Florida believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream. I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow permabans. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of week bans and staggered by the winds of staff tyranny.. You have been the veterans of shitpost suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Jailbreak, go back to War3, go back to Skill Surf, go back to Bhop, go back to Zombie Escape, go back to the slums and ghettos of Garry’s Mod, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the sG dream. I have a dream that one day this community will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all members are created equal.” I have a dream that one day on the blue hills of Discord that the sons of former autists and the sons of former normies will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the forums, a place sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little autist children will one day live in a community where they will not be judged by the level of their autism but by the content of their shitposts. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day, down in War3, with its vicious racists, with its staff members having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in War3, little autist boys and autist girls will be able to join hands with little normie boys and normie girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of Mimic shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the exile with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling splinter discords of our community into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to play together, to shitpost together, to brofest together, to jailbreak together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day. This will be the day when all of Mimic’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My community, ‘tis of thee, sweet land of meme-ery, of thee I sing. Land where my shitposters died, land of the memer’s pride, from every shoutbox-side, let freedom ring.” And if sG is to be a great community this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of Discord. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of the forums. Let freedom ring from the heightening voice channels! Let freedom ring from Jailbreak! Let freedom ring from War3! But not only that; let freedom ring from Skill Surf! Let freedom ring from Bhop! Let freedom ring from every brazilian in ZE. From every autist, let freedom ring. And when this happens, when we allow autists like Destin to be unbanned, when we unban autists like Destin from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of Mimic’s children, autist members and normie members, Staff and Members, SOs and trolls, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old autist spiritual, “Unbanned at last! Unbanned at last! Thank Mimic Almighty, we are unbanned at last!”

    Getting admin back

    Rank apps are a pain in the ass. Also to clarify a few things, I was absolutely demanding admin because due to the ranking formats, I was under the impression that I should have had it. I had ex-SO basic admin privileges (after I stepped down as SO) which aren't officially a thing so it seemed ludicrous to me that someone we have written down on "paper" is suddenly invalid because of how one person feels about it. Furthermore, I did actively reach out to Lindsay but turns out they're not adviser anymore, so then I reached out to Orange* who then contacted Zach. I created the forum post as a more permanent paper trail to refer to. EDIT: Cause it wouldn't be a Sith post if I didn't meme

    The Lack of Rule Enforcement on TTT:GO

    Coming from hundreds of hours as staff on TTT Gmod, and hundreds of hours on other sG servers, I never had a problem with server quality or community.... until now. I don't have anything against any INDIVIDUAL players, although several of them are extremely childish. Here's a summary of tonight's events that made me quit sG TTT:GO permanently. 1. Round start, I was selected as Traitor. 2. Daniel damaged me for 18 with a decoy. Issue #1 3. Eagle called SUS on me for taking damage. Issue #2 4. I stood still typing because my mic broke, and as I was typing out remarks defending myself, everyone started calling me an asshole and Milkman RDM'd me. 5. Nobody was held accountable for the actions, and I was ridiculed until leaving. Issue #3 6. lindsay was also ridiculed for helping me to find the forums and file a report, THE ONLY PERSON DOING THEIR JOB ON THE SERVER. Issue #4 I understand that this server is still in development, that is why I will turn this complaint into a SUGGESTION. I don't want any individuals listed punished in any way for their actions. Issue #1: The decoy is a terrible item that aggravates countless players and is used for mass RDM (always unpunished) SOLUTION: Remove the decoy or alter that it only affects the user, or does no fall damage to surrounding players. Issue #2: (Minor) Calling suspicion should be limited. On several occasions, popular players (loud players) would call suspicion on me for no reason (I had not fired any shots that round or been near killings), and it would result in me being tailed constantly throughout the round, ruining my T rounds. SOLUTION: Encourage popular players (i.e. STAFF) not to call suspicion for no reason, and generally uphold good sportsmanship. Issue #3: RDM is not a mystery. It's not hard to slay the RDMers, and Milkman even admitted to RDM'ing me on purpose because I was "being a dick". This is not a reason. SOLUTION: Allegedly there are damage logs, and its not hard to remember who called the false KOS in the first place. Enforcement of the rules is CRUCIAL for server survival. Issue #4: Despite being several sG members on the server, Lindsay and another sGr, can't remember who, were the only ones trying to help. (Although the sGr in question did it in a very rude way, it is still appreciated). I expected staff to try to HELP newer players, and not enable them to be bullied/RDM'd. SOLUTION: DO YOUR JOB!!!! Even if you are not a staff member, tasked with enforcing the rules, EVERY sG member is expected to uphold a good image for the sG community. If countless sG players are teaming up, enabling others to break server rules, and willingly breaking server rules themselves without punishment, you will lose your player base to toxic rulebreakers. Thanks for reading all of this. I think it is very important to encourage discussion about improvements for the server, and not to have members discourage this discussion (!!! pointed remark !!!). I will stick to sG bhop for now, but I'm looking forward to playing other sG servers in the future.

    Getting admin back

    Sith was the hardest working SO on GMOD and since the beginning of time Zach has used his discretion to give admin to regular members and non-members. In this case, I believe Zach should use his discretion in the favor of Sith. If anyone is willing to make a case against this, I'd be more than happy to debate it. Ultimately, its up to Zach, and I hope he chooses to give Sith admin if hes willing to volunteer his time while on the server.

    Abstain.42/20 @Revöker has hit the nail in the head. And I'll post what I've written in discord to naufrage directly that best sums up my thoughts on the entire voting system. But the biggest thing is that there is no more incentive to really vote, but Naufrage is bringing population back to the forums, which has been dead since discord has been the biggest way we've talked to one another. But in the end of the day, Its about what the community wants. If we're wrong, we're wrong and he'll get Jp'd again. If we're not and he actually matured, it will be a good addition to the clan. Best of luck Nau.
